Wow, that's a wildly varying set. I'd go with the TI Flats for sure, if you want flats. If you want rounds, the Pick of the Ricks Curt Mangan set is excellent. Regardless, use a wound 20 for the G and A octave for sure! It is the best approximation of the old "compressed round wound" that RIC used to sell.

Shoot yeah, i’ll give the CMs a try! Lot less pricey! I guess I shouldn’t have wandered in the Newman Marcus side of the string mall so quickly!! Thanks for the recommendations!

Reckon l’ll wait for my wrench before changing them out. Since it was set with a lighter gauge, some adjustment will probably be necessary.
